Submission + - Kim Dotcom's Mega Fileshare Service Riddled With Security Holes (techweekeurope.co.uk)

twoheadedboy writes: "Kim Dotcom launched his new project Mega on Sunday, claiming it was to be "the privacy company". But it might not be so private after all, as security professionals have ripped it to shreds. There are numerous problems with how encryption is handled, an XSS flaw and users can't change their passwords, they say. But there are suspicions Mega is handing out encryption keys to users and touting strong security to cover its own back. After all, if Kim Dotcom and Co don't know what goes on the site, they might not be liable for copyright prosecutions, as they were for Megaupload, Mega's preprocessor."
